Rhubarb and Ginger Muffins

This recipe really packs a fruity Rhubarb and hot ginger punch. Really good. Great as a breakfast muffin or as a treat. Don't worry about the sugar in the rhubarb, you won't use all the syrup (though what's leftover makes for a lovely ice-cream syrup or cordial with soda water).
